Jennifer Lopez skipping World Cup opening ceremony

This week marks the beginning of the 2014 World Cup, perhaps the biggest non-Olympics sporting event in the world. A total of 32 nations will send their best soccer stars to Brazil to compete for the top prize in futbol.

But the star providing its theme song will no longer be attending. READ FULL STORY

Governors Ball 2014, Day 1: OutKast, Phoenix, Jenny Lewis in a New York state of mind

Sure, it wasn’t completely underwater this year, but Governors Ball remains one of the more problematic three-day festivals on the summer calendar: it’s in too remote a location, the layout is cramped, and the lineup too schizophrenic for the volume of acts on the bill.

The bulk of those negative vibes got washed away the second the curtain dropped on the GovBallNYC Stage, revealing OutKast’s Andre 3000 and Big Boi, who immediately tore into a neck-snapping rendition of the blistering Stankonia single “B.O.B (Bombs Over Baghdad).” READ FULL STORY

Mariah Carey stumbles on album chart, Coldplay reign for second week

I-Am-Mariah.jpg

Apparently no amount of riding the subway in a sparkly ball gown could overcome the lack of heat on Mariah Carey’s latest album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse.

Carey’s 14th studio album only managed to shift 56,000 copies in its opening week on the Billboard 200, placing her third behind country star Brantley Gilbert’s Just As I Am and Coldplay’s Ghost Stories, which spent a second week in the top spot with 85,000 copies sold. READ FULL STORY

Drake drops new single, hints at album release date

Rapper, Canadian, Saturday Night Live double-threat, and future ESPYs host Drake dropped a fresh song late last night. It’s called “0 to 100 / The Catch Up,” and it is as clear an elucidation of Drake’s state of mind as there is in his catalog.  READ FULL STORY

Iggy Azalea tops Hot 100 with 'Fancy,' matches Beatles for chart record

It’s still early in the season, but right now it looks the battle for the official song of the summer is being fought (and won) by a single woman.

On this week’s Billboard Hot 100, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” has landed number one, knocking John Legend’s “All of Me” from the top spot and passing Ariana Grande’s “Problem” in the process.

Of course, Azalea is also a featured guest on “Problem,” and with that song at number two this week, Azalea has pulled off something pretty remarkable: READ FULL STORY

Steve Perry joins Eels on stage, sings live for first time in nearly two decades: Watch here!

How did you spend your Memorial Day weekend? Did you go to the beach, hang out at a barbecue, or get married in a cartoonishly extravagant ceremony you’re bound to regret?

Former Journey singer Steve Perry found his own way to celebrate the holiday– by stepping up on stage and singing live for the first time in almost 20 years.

Song of the Summer? Ariana Grande talks the making of her hit 'Problem'

After moving 438,000 downloads in its first week (the fourth-best-selling debut ever for a female artist), Ariana Grande’s “Problem” is now officially a contender for the 2014 song-of-summer title.

But the 20-year-old pop star originally didn’t think the swagger-fueled jam would be a single. “It was so different from me,” says Grande, who had her breakout hit last year with ’90s throwback “The Way,” featuring rapper Mac Miller, and was best known before that for her roles on the Nickelodeon series Victorious and Sam & Cat. She decided to go with the Max Martin-produced track after getting some advice from her friend Big Sean. READ FULL STORY

The Black Keys beat Michael Jackson on the charts, score first number one album

It’s been a big couple of weeks for the Black Keys. They performed on SNL, released their eighth album, Turn Blue, managed to escape from the sinister clutches of Danny McBride on our cover, and now they’ve got themselves their first ever chart-topping record.

The Michael Jackson hologram appeared at the Billboard Awards, and it was weird

For a guy who passed away nearly five years ago, Michael Jackson sure seems busy lately. His second posthumous album, Xscape, just hit stores (and is refreshingly not embarrassing), and Sunday night he appeared — via the miracle of modern hologram technology — on the Billboard Music Awards to perform “Slave to the Rhythm.”

Miley Cyrus teams with Flaming Lips for Beatles cover at Billboard Awards

Miley Cyrus was out of commission for a spell, which kept her away of eye-popping costumes and attention-grabbing headlines for a few weeks. (How did the Internet not sink into the ocean due to a dearth of Cyrus-related material?)

But now she’s back, touring Europe, happily grinding against anatomically correct blow-up dolls, and dropping in on Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards via satellite to deliver a cover of the Beatles’ “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds” with some help from the Flaming Lips.
